W.M.'s Vietnamese Special Character GIFs

The following special character GIFs are designed to match the Times font as displayed by Netscape NavigatorTM or CommunicatorTM running on my Macintosh, but may differ in size on different systems. The GIFs have transparent background, and are suitable for use with various background colours and images.

To download the GIFs, either brush the image with your mouse to activate the "Save this Image as..." utility of your browser, or click on the respective caption for individual display of the GIF which can then be downloaded by pressing on "Save As" of the topbar pulldown menu under "File".

The name of the GIF without the .gif ending is given in the caption. A red asterisk (*) after a caption indicates that the <IMG SRC="..."> command for the corresponding GIF should be imbedded in <SUB>...</SUB> to lower the position of the image below the text baseline.

GIFs for further characters specific to the Vietnamese Romanized script are planned and will be added here.

Further special character GIFs are available on a separate page.

Note1.  An uppercase D with stroke, , is also available as iso8859-1 entity &ETH; or &#208;, while an upper and a lowercase Y with acute accent, and , are available as &Yacute; or &#221; and &yacute; or &#253; respectively. However, this is not supported by all browsers (see partial overview on other page). The GIFs have been included here for when one wants to be sure that they will display the way they are supposed to on other browsers as well. Here is how the respective iso8859-1 entities show up on the browser with which you are presently viewing this page:
&#208; = Ð     &#221; = Ý     &#253; = ý
&ETH; = Ð     &Yacute; = Ý     &yacute; = ý
The iso8859-1 lowercase correspondent to is , denoted &eth; . or &#240;

2.  The vowel characters with circumflex accent , , and are also available as &acirc; or &#226; (â), &ecirc; or &#234; (ê), and &ocirc; or &#244; (ô) respectively, which are generally displayed correctly on just about all browsers in use. However, the displayed circumflex accent is too small for clear depiction of combinations with tone marks. The GIFs have been included to have vowels with lone circumflex accent matching those with combinations of the circumflex with acute (sc), grave (huyn), tilde (ngã), dot (nng), and hi tonal markations. 
The same also refers to the respective uppercase characters.

NOTICE: Be sure to download the character GIFs to your site first, before calling them up in <IMG SRC="..."> declarations on your Web page(s).
Do not under any circumstances place paths in such declarations to GIFs on this site, but always download the GIFs you wish to use to your site first.
